As the night falls in late summer, you get that craving for a cold treat. Something sweet, creamy, smooth with a chill to cool the hot breath of summer. Ice cream is the seasons choice treat, but what if you could lighten up a bit, skip the lactose and go for a clean eating option? You could even have it guilt free every night of the week. Yes, please! Frozen bananas blended with natural peanut butter comes out just like soft serve. Take away all the refined sugars you find in the flavors as the frozen yogurt bar.
Cut up two (or more) bananas in to 1 inch pieces and freeze for at least 3 hours. Once the bananas are frozen, blend them with 1 to 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter or almond butter. You may need to add a splash of Unsweetened Almond Milk, depending on the power of your blender. If your patient, you probably won’t need it (if you add too much it will be soupy). If you want more of an ice cream consistency, pop the mixture back into the freezer or a treat later on.
Grab two spoons and someone who shares well. Since it doesn’t contain cream or milk, the blend won’t sit in your stomach. Cool treat, perfect for nighttime snacking.
You can replace the peanut butter with other frozen fruits for a banana based sorbet. It will change your summer!
